The issue is that something (probably a maintainer script) in your dma
package failed to run successfully and, now, the original package is
missing. If you do not have the package anymore because you don't
need it, you might do `apk del dma` to remove it. Otherwise, you will
need to supply a working dma package and then do `apk fix` for the
error to go away.
